Though I don't believe God, God bless Reagan and Bush Sr and America! May all savages and mystics die of smallpox and/or the plague. May the flag of European civilization never cease to wave! God bless Western culture for giving us all we ever need! Whoever denies this is a savage!

Reagan, Bush Sr, and a lot of Americans are mystics. The majority of European civilization are also mystics. Culture has never given me anything, since it is an abstract concept. I would like to thank people like Ayn Rand though. Btw, I'm not a savage.

I love black people, but I hate Obama. Just thought I'd get that out and hope its acceptable to the folks here and I'm not treading on any toes here wrt black people. I'm colored BTW. Ayn Rand is the greatest author ever. She was the most important intellectual, apart from Friedman, Mises and Hayek of the 20th century.

Strange that you would mention your race here. Perhaps you should troll elsewhere.

Why? Does my race make you uncomfortable? "Racism is the lowest form of collectivism"- Ayn Rand.

Why do you love black people?
I guess even though I'm much grateful to European civilization for giving humanity everything, I recognize African civilization has given many great athletes.

Well, you surely are at least aware that your wording is superficially indistinguishable from that of a race troll. But I'll assume that you're sincere, and welcome you.
Sorry, but that was not my intent. Thanks for the welcome ;) I'm just pissed at people who think criticizing Obama and black on black crime is equal to racism. Thats all.

Thats true. Though they saved western civilization from communist savages and mystics. Reagan along with Thatcher were the greatest defenders of capitalism from a governmental standpoint. Rand defended capitalism from a philosophical view.

The majority of European civilization are also mystics.
Thats not true, there's much to appreciate for capitalism from a lot of Western culture. Of course, excluding parts from mystics.

Culture has never given me anything, since it is an abstract concept.
thats a bogus stance to take. You're either for preserving the American way of life or against it. there are no gray areas! I'm amazed that anyone who has read Rand could say such things!

BTW, what are people's here thoughts on Mises, Hayek, Friedman and other of the superb Western capitalist economists who worked so hard to defend and preserve capitalism against the socialist mystic savage hoards.

I believe Rand was also the greatest economist and historian. I mean to say Rand anticipated much of what Mises, Hayek, Friedman wrote in her superb novels and awesome essays!

I think you'll find that most people here will not mention race at all. Skin color, ethnicity, etc, are irrelevant in judging a person. The fact that you placed undue importance on the matter is probably what rubbed people here the wrong way.

"Obama is black" is not an Objectivist criticism of the man. "Obama is evil" would probably be more accurate.

As an example, control+F search shows that the words "black", "African", and "race" all appear a grand total of zero times in that article.

EDIT: clarification.

:) Thats a relief. I'm sorry if I rubbed people the wrong way. But still I'm pissed at the racist idiot savages who say white privilege or white power exists. Like I said before, I can't stand Black racist scumbags who say all whites are racist.

"Obama is evil" would probably be more accurate.
Exactly. He is the most evil socialist president.

I apologize if you're sincere but I really want you to know your prose comes off as parody and sarcasm towards what you view as an extreme position...

Also I think you will find that the viewpoints on this board are not as homogenous as you might suspect. What "we people" think of things is going to be somewhat different depending on which of "us people" you ask.

Your first statement is debatable. Communism would eventually have collapsed regardless of Reagan or Thatcher. They clearly did not save western civilization from mystics since mysticism is still a large part of modern politics.

Western civilization must be in favor of capitalism...that's why we have an increase in welfare statism in the west.

I am also against an indefinite preservation af the "American way of life." I hope to see the day when it is replaced by a "way of life" that respects individual rights.

Uh, but there is a huge difference from saying that you benefit from the nature of our culture, versus saying that a culture actually gives you things. We don't accept handouts, we work for what we value. Western culture doesn't give us anything.

I'm not sure what you mean by that, but the American foundation is individual rights. America's founding is a huge ace in the hole for those of us who are fighting for liberty.

While it's true that America was founded on individual rights, I believe that the "American way" now means something closer to a Christian welfare state, ie. God and Country slogans. If the people of the US return to those foundations of individual rights, then I will swiftly embrace the "American way."
